William S. Hart


The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station’s Special Assignment Team, responding to citizen complaints of gang activity, arrested five men on warrants, weapons and drug charges in Canyon Country and Newhall this week.

Here’s the story from the station’s Facebook page:

Our Special Assignment Team (SAT) has been conducting directed patrol in areas of Canyon Country and Newhall that have been identified by concerned residents due to crime activity and possible gang activity.

Over the course of the last few days, through their directed patrol, the SAT team arrested in Canyon Country: a 24-year-old man and admitted gang member for possession of methamphetamine; a 40-year-old man on a $140K warrant for identity theft and fraud; and a 31-year-old man for possession of methamphetamine.

In Newhall, SAT Team deputies arrested a 22-year-old man and admitted gang member on several outstanding warrants including possession of a firearm, possession of narcotics, and trespassing.

Note to Canyon Country residents: Deputies, per your request, are keeping an eye on the Jakes Way area and making contact with gang members who are found to be loitering in the area. Although the ones that they made contact with the other day were not found to be currently involved in criminal activity, deputies made contact with them, and noted their encounter — just in case any incidents should occur at a later time.

SCV Sheriff's Station desk

To the residents that live in apartment complexes in the Soledad Canyon Road/ Sierra Highway area, we are aware that some of you reported activity of suspicious men within your complex and possible narcotics activity. The SAT team is patrolling the areas you mentioned. The other day they conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle seen in the referenced area, and arrested a man who was found to be in possession of methamphetamine.

Our SAT team and patrol deputies will continue to monitor these areas, please keep us informed about what is going in your neighborhood. If you see suspicious activity, or you witness a crime in progress, call our station immediately. If you have a tip about illegal activity, you may relay it anonymously through LACrimeStoppers.org.

Keep your assigned area Crime Prevention Deputy in the loop about any ongoing neighborhood issues. If you’re not sure which deputy oversees your neighborhood, see http://scvsheriff.com/zone-leaders/.

  2. Lol ” santa clarita gang members” more like crackheadds with no life

  3. Huh, Santa Clarita didn’t have a gang problem in the past… I wonder what changed??

  4. Well used to be no assholes in Santa Clarita now they followed us out here. Go back where you came from

  5. Jeebuz.
    Who would fear a “gang” that grew up hard on the “Mean streets of Stevenson Ranch” anyways….

  6. Jeanne says:

    Maybe gang members are stocking a drug house or apt. on Jakes way? Good reason for neighbors to call.
    Be careful that they don’t know who you are that is calling but keep doing it. Merry Christmas.

  7. Lisa Lehman Lisa Lehman says:

    It’s good to stay on top of it no matter what year it is. Thank you for taking care of us. Better now before it gets worse.

  8. Go get them!!!! Thank you deputies.

  9. The more the city grows the gang issues grow with it. Social media makes us all aware of the problem that’s always been there. In the 60/70’s we were the dead body dumping grounds for valley gang wars. See something, say something is a great tool. Use it🚔👍🏻👍🏻

  10. It’s about time!! Those apartments complexes are the pit and full of gangbangers!! SCV Sheriffs have known this for years!!
